    With that neckline, I would keep it simple. 

    Edited, I missed the last paragraph for some reason.  I would change the dress if you are set on the necklaces.

    I voted too busy. Change the dress like you mentioned or opt for dramatic earrings. If this is your Maid/Matron of Honor dress then maybe she can wear this with statement earings and cuff. The other BMs can wear something that will allow for the type of necklace that you want.

    Edit: I’m thinking of short earrings.

    i say fun earings! no necklace with that dress, so change it!! Somthing strapless or with thin straps would be fun with a chunky necklace

    the ruffles plus a huge necklace would be too much. I agree with the big earrings idea!

    The necklace would work wonderfully with that second dress as long as it doesn’t have that strap, IMO.

    @tksjewelry:  Agree.  A big necklace with that strap makes it too much.  For necklaces like the ones you’re looking at, you’ll need strapless dresses.

    @katiee0707:  re: 2nd dress? not with that strap. the 1st dress would even be a better choice over that because at least it would have symmetry.

    The straps would compete with the necklaces. 

    P.S. I LOVE the statement necklaces!

    Awesome dress, awesome necklaces, but with those straps and necklaces together it’ll look cluttered.

    Strapless dresses in the same colour/sytle would look cool!

    @katiee0707:  My girls wanted straps.  So, I went for thin ones.  I think something similiar would look fine with a statement necklace!

    @katiee0707:  If you need straps, then I would go with simple straps.  Then the necklace would stand out and not look crowded.
